ACCOMMODATIONS

Your Home in Florence, Italy

While most tourists congregate on the north side of the river Arno, the Oltrarno neighborhood on the south side of the river is here where local Florentines still live. Oltrarno was rebuilt once the Medici family settled there during the renaissance. Today, our members live in apartments located within restored Italian palazzos that maintain their historical charm, but provide modern amenities such as dishwashers, washing machines, high speed internet, and fully equipped kitchen, living room, and bedroom. When you walk outside, you can still admire traditional artisans working in their shops, or you can savor famous Italian aperitifs in one of the many wine bars nearby. Best of all, you’re only a short walk across the bridge to all the tourist attractions on the north side of the river.

All apartments are located within a restored historical palazzo, and include the following:
  • Fully equipped kitchen
  • High speed internet
  • Weekly cleanings
  • Queen sized beds
  • Dining area
  • Walking distance from everything
  • Living room
  • Bathroom with shower stall

Martina’s narratives traverse the city’s streets, unraveling tales of old families, historical events, and the influential figures behind iconic structures or stunning art pieces. Beyond history, Martina introduces clients to Florence’s contemporary life, exploring markets, artisan enclaves, modern art exhibitions, and fashion boutiques.
